Adrian Pritchard: Unstrung Theory

  • Comment

Artist Adrian Pritchard’s solo show unpicks string theory

Blackpool-based artist and gallerist Adrian Pritchard captures motion in his paintings using practiced techniques such as pouring on a single point on a flat canvas before spinning to disperse the colours. The works are left to dry flat for several months. Some ‘grow’ thick layers of paint which can produce stalactite-like forms; others crack revealing layers and sub-layers below.

These accompany kinetic art installation String Theory – a live work in progress during its exhibition. Viscous liquids are chosen for their symmetrical and entropic qualities – watching paint dry has never been so interesting.

HIVE Gallery recently celebrated its first birthday, curated by Patrick Murphy.
